TIMS aims to numerically simulate various physical and chemical processes that occur over the Earth’s terrestrial surface, e.g., exchanges and flows of energy, water, carbon and other chemicals between/within the soil, plants, and air. TIMS will couple process-based surface atmospheric, hydrological, ecological, geomorphic, geochemical models. It is being compiled from existing models that have arisen from individual scientific communities, including
Currently, TIMS version 1 (TIMS01), which couples CATHY (surface and subsurface flow model) and NoahMP (land surface scheme of energy, water, and carbon exchanges with the atmosphere) is available upon request. We will release TIMS01 with a detailed documentation in August, 2013. Coupling with other model components are under developments.
